Celebrating 40 Years of Service
to the Community

The year 2021 marks Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region’s 40th anniversary! EAFWR was founded in 1981 by parents of children with developmental disabilities, as a way to build friendship and nurture community in Waterloo Region. We now serve over 2,000 adults and children with developmental and physical disabilities.

Join us as we look back and celebrate the people and places that helped us become the organization we are today.

As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations, we will be highlighting stories and milestones, and sharing photos, interesting facts and moments from the past 40 years and we need your help!
